PRESIDENT'S REPORT 2021

Bowral Bridge Club

President’s Report 2021

2021 has been a very unusual and difficult year for our Club. This can
all be attributed to Covid and its many ramifications.
The year was punctuated by a series of stop start situations. There
was no bridge in January. Play commenced again on February 8th with
seven and a half tables after being closed for 10 months, and was
continuous for the next five months. Player numbers gradually
increased. Due to the reintroduction of Lockdown, however, sessions at
the Golf Club ceased after June 24th.

It wasn’t until November 15th that face to face bridge returned to the
Golf Club. We immediately had 15 & 1/2 tables. Thursday competitions
were a bit slower to build up numbers, but players who did come
enjoyed the more relaxed play. This enthusiasm reflected the general
feeling that there was no substitute for playing competitive bridge with
friends accompanied by good conversation etc.


There will be face to face bridge from now on apart from breaks at
Christmas etc. Most days in December will be Red Point Days which will
add greatly to the interest.

Because of all the interruptions during 2020 and 2021, the Committee
decided to suspend payment of fees until July 2022. So members have
had two years for the price of one.

For the same reasons, it was decided to have a scaled down AGM,
which will take place after the Christmas Lunch on December 6th. The
other important decision was to not have fresh elections for the
Committee until the AGM in August 2022. Approval for this will be
sought on December 6th.

Dr Robert Young (President)
(1December 2021)
